Tough Mudder Event Returning to Mason

Organizers of the Tough Mudder obstacle course event have decided to return to Mason County after a successful event in 2012. Scheduled for Oct. 19 and 20, the event drew 8,400 participants and 3,000 spectators to the Big Rock Off-Road Park in 2012. Maysville officials said the event had a significant economic impact, with hotels booked for the weekend, as well as restaurants and local retailers also benefiting from competitors and visitors to the area.

Participants in last year's Tough Mudder event crawl through mud and under electric wires in one of the many obstacles. The Tough Mudder event will return again in October.
